We have a few times expressed our excitement on the reopening of the Lee County Community Hospital as well as thanking all the individuals that helped in making this reopening happen. There have been several successes in the few short weeks the new hospital has been open and there is more good news for our community and Mitch Kennedy, Administrator, shared this information with us last week. Ballad continues to work on their goal of population health and rural access and also continues to build on their portfolio of offerings for Lee County and the surrounding areas. This in mind, they have been able to nail down some dates for the Mobile Mammography screenings. These dates are:
- August 17th
- September 15th
- October 15th
- August 19th* (this is pending a cancelled event with BlueCross BlueShield)
- September 24th
- October 29th
Ballad is working with the physicians in the group to utilize this opportunity and dates to offer these services to people in the community without the unnecessary travel. This opportunity is also another reason to be happy that we have local access to healthcare at Lee County Community Hospital.
